It was ok. We were all set for a nice juicy steak. They don't serve steak for lunch. Stupid. It's a steak house. I got the prime rib sandwich. It was ok.
I just love this place! Everything is always amazing!
Our server was great - attentive and kind. The food was good and the ambiance was nice.
It was my wife and I’s anniversary and we had a wonderful experience and meal. Peter our waiter was awesome and pleasant. It was a great 25 year anniversary dinner. Thank you Aloha Steak House.
We went for a friend's birthday lunch. Our server was very nice, the food good. We will go back.
My girl friend had a Birthday. We had a nice dinner the service was great I will go back again
It was very easy to make reservations on line. Our table was waiting for us when we got there. Our server, Justin was fabulous! Very engaging, he paid attention to everyone at our table, especially our little 3 year old grandson. Food came soon after drinks, which was great, we were all very hungry. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. A very nice birthday sweet treat came in the end that was shared by all of us. A perfect evening!
We were trying to find some place different to go this year to celebrate Valentines Day and my husbands bday with sister and husband. I came up with Aloha Steakhouse and they all loved it. We will definitely be back. We got a seat by the window as requested and watched the people on the boardwalk and the ocean as the sun set. Service was great and food was wonderful. A good time had by all!
Sat us outside and when asking to sit inside after not being asked for our order after 40 minutes of waiting, their reply was "we can offer you a blanket" (due to cold weather, while inside was 2/3's empty). Then overheard hostess mentioning our complaints to coworker's jokingly
Awesome night!! Good food, excellent service, great drinks.
Delicious food from appetizers to dinner to dessert. We had great service too! The view of the sun setting adds to the experience if you can get a table by the window.
the waitstaff must have been extremely over tasked because it took over an hour to get our food. we waited long periods of time between interactions with the wait staff. we placed our drink orders with one guy who took a long time just to bring waters, iced tea, and two glasses of wine, and then we never saw him again. the food was also glaringly mediocre. the burger bun was dry and fell apart and the burger had no flavor. the view is about the only thing this place has going for it.
Excellent service from the moment we walked into the doors. The hostess was amazing! Our table server was great! Food was phenomenal! Perfect all around!
Thank you for a great first time experience!
Great dinner & service with friends
We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our Valentines Day dinner. We look forward to our next visit. This restaurant was awarded Ventura Chamber of Commerce Mid-Sized business of the year and it was easy to see why.
Our server, Peter, really made our visit to Aloha Steakhouse a special one. Yes, the food was good (the crab and lobster were a bit meh, but the coconut shrimp, fish & chips, and prime rib were fantastic) and the drinks excellent, but the extra attention to detail and personalized service he offered really went above and beyond! There were several LARGE groups in house this evening, and yet, we were always well-taken-care-of. I would highly recommend, and look forward to revisiting myself the next time I'm in Ventura for a special occasion.
Very nice dining experience. Beautiful restaurant with a fantastic sunset ocean view. Excellent service by Jason. Enjoyed my grilled sea bass, hubby had the ribeye and liked it as well. They gave a complimentary slice of macadamia nut ice cream pie for my b-day.
They also have a very nice happy hour. Highly recommend Aloha!
Outstanding Oceanview, Super Service, Fair Food, Extremely Expensive, Horrendous Hostess
Aloha is located between a 3 story parking garage and 12 story hotel right on the ‘boardwalk’ at Ventura Beach. Its main attraction is the ocean. Our server was excellent and attentive to our needs. My wife and I shared an appetizer of Thai Mussels (the coconut sauce was so salty we could not eat it) and each had Spicy Ahi Tuna (spicy it was not; tasteless it was, so, again, we ate but half). Over $50 per person (tip and tax included, but no drinks, no dessert). We would not return because of the incredibly unprofessional hostess (so as not to impugn anyone else who works at Aloha in that capacity, this was Saturday evening, February 3).
We live in LA and our son lives in Ventura. He has a busy work schedule so trying to visit for lunch or dinner can be a challenge at times. We have come to really love the Aloha Steak House due to it's convenience for our son, wonderful seaside setting (you get out of your car and the ocean smell that we love is immediate), great food, excellent service and not too costly.
Plus we also know to get there a little early to walk along the seaside promenade that is adjacent to the restaurant. Parking is validated. All in all makes for a great experience and worth the drive. Have been there for both lunch and dinner and the quality never wavers. Will definitely return.
Wonderful dinner. Salmon was delicious. Service was wonderful and on top that the wonderful sunset view we had over the water was gorgeous.
Very good steak and lobster. Great martinis. Service was very friendly but slow. Had to request things multiple times.
Everything was great except for a table of 8 that completely blew out the decibel level. Their table was in the center of the room and every other table in there couldn’t have a decent conversation. Pitiful for an upscale restaurant
Great quality on food. The service from the staff was really good too. The steaks are hard to beat. Probably best steak house in Ventura area.
It was my daughters 27th bday, we had a great meal, and service was great. Perfect night out.
We had reserved our table online the day before and got there 30 minutes early and our table was available to us still. We got attended to right away and staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.
A great time to go early on Sunday, off season, you'll get seating at the boardwalk windows. We had a very good time and enjoyed some equally good food. Wait time was minimal and service was excellent. I can recommend the macadamia crusted white roughy, moist and delicious. Enjoy!
We had a wonderful 50th celebration for my wife! The service was great and the food delicious. They really went above and beyond to make it a special birthday experience for her! Thank you!
Great waiter, Name was Logan, Awesome customer service!
This was our first time dining at Aloha Steakhouse. We have friends who have recommended the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed the food and the service. Our server gave us just the right amount of attentiveness. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the wine list was very robust. We will definitely return.
It was amazing!
Birthday dessert was complimentary.
We'd never been to the restaurant, but decided to try it out for my birthday. It was a great choice. Our server was outstanding, the food was so good, and the ambiance was just right (busy but not crazy, perfect noise level). I'd recommend the wedge salad and the lobster tail!
Food was mediocre but tolerable however, the waiter we had clearly exhibited poor customer service. He was very argumentative, almost in a threatening way. We ended up asking to speak w/ the shift manager. We told Ryan the manager, we were there to eat and enjoy our weekend and not for Calvin to argue and scold us!
The food and service were impeccable. A bit pricey but worth it for special occasions.
As always Aloha Steakhouse was superb, this visit however even exceeded my expectations. Peter the waiter is outstanding he has excellent knowledge of the menu, very knowledgeable of the various Waze our dishes could be prepared, and an outstanding knowledge of the wine list and recommendations hats off the Aloha Steakhouse once again.
We had some out of town guests that we took to Sunday lunch here. The food was delicious and our waiter was outstanding. We would definitely come back!
Great service and great food. Nice local restaurant with beautiful sunsets.
Me and my wife went here for a rare date night away from the kids. Place was real busy because of Saturday night. Took quite a while just to get bread and water to the table (not the server fault other people dropping the ball) But our server Peter was AWESOME he kept making sure to recheck with us often as he could refilling drinks and even comped a hula pie which was amazing. Hands down the best sever I have ever had in any restaurant. We will definitely be back because of the great food and amazing service despite the business.
I have to say when I looked up romantic waterfront places to eat, this was the first one that popped up. I made a reservation for 2 by the water. We got there and were seated by the biggest loudest table of people drinking. 3 ladies had to keep getting up and blocking whatever romantic view of the water there was. We ordered appetizers, steak to split, and some drinks. When we were done we were getting dessert for our anniversary. It was bananas foster, except our server forgot to mention that we were under a fan and had to go to by the big loud table. I asked her can you stop the fan. I go the whole point of bananas foster, is to see them very lit up. I should have just canceled the order. She seemed so put out by me asking her to do it by our table. I was really hoping for a romantic night, but instead got a party with drunks.
Thanks for ruining our 12th anniversary

I brought my wife here for our 16th wedding anniversary. It had been ages since we'd been on anything like a date. Overall, it was very worthwhile. This establishment knows how to cook steak. They serve a truly wonderful green salad with the entrees. Not just some skimpy, boring afterthought. Service was fast paced but effective and pleasant. The atmosphere is a bit on the higher decibel side, but that just encouraged us to snuggle closer in our booth in order to talk, which suited me just fine.
